TypesHolotype: THNHM 1436, adult male. Exact locality, collector, and date of collection unknown. Paratypes. Paratype THNHM 1338 is from the same locality as the holotype and no other data are known.

CommentComparisons. Cnemaspis narathiwatensis sp. nov. is differentiated from all species of Cnemaspis except C. affinis, C. biocellata, C. kumpoli, C. mcguirei, and C. pseudomcguirei in having a black shoulder patch enclosing a white to yellow ocellus. Its smaller maximum SVL (43.2 mm) clearly separates it from the larger C. kumpoli (SVL 63.0 mm) and C. mcguirei (SVL 65.0 mm). It is separated from C. affinis by having, as opposed to lacking, tubercles in the lateral caudal furrow; from C. biocellata by having keeled, as opposed to smooth subtibials and subcaudals; and from C. pseudomcguirei by having pore-bearing, precloacal scales separated into two series as opposed to being continuous. Other differences in squamation and color pattern are scored across all species in TABLES 1 and 2 in GRISMER et al. 2010.

Diagnosis. Maximum SVL 53.2 mm; nine or 10 supralabials; 7–11 infralabials; keeled ventral scales; 3–6 discontinuous, pore-bearing precloacal scales with round pores; 28–34 paravertebral tubercles; body tubercles randomly arranged, present or absent on flanks; tubercles in lateral caudal furrows; ventrolateral row of caudal tubercles present; lateral row of caudal tubercles present; caudal tubercles do not encircle tail; subcaudals keeled; no enlarged, median row of subcaudals; 1–3 postcloacal tubercles on each side of tail base; no enlarged femoral or subtibial scales; submetatarsal scales of first toe not enlarged; subtibials keeled; 24–30 subdigital fourth toe lamellae; white ocellus in shoulder region of males; light-colored vertebral stripe variably present; whitish to yellow bars on flanks; black and white caudal bands posteriorly. See Tables 6,7 in GRISMER et al. 2014. 
EtymologyThe specific epithet narathiwatensis is named after the Thai Province, Narathiwat in reference to the type locality.
